Re: Non-Demand

Hi jeff19, in reviewing your account I am showing poor upstream and downstream issues that are likely the reason you are experiencing issues with Video on Demand. I recommend getting a technician out to further investigate and fix this issue and will send you a private message to further assist.

 

Thank you

you could test more by testing from a desk/laptop at xtv.comcast.net to see if the program plays there. On-demand content is streamed to you.

 

To fix your box it is likely you have bad signal conditions for the main box. contact 877-896-8678 so they can look at the live data and logs and schedule a call if necessary.

Error message when trying to view Xfinity on Demand

Hello,

I keep getting an error message (XRE-22-SRM-8001).  I called Xfinity, and the representative reset my box 3 times.  I also reset my box twice.  It lets me go to VOD, and select my program but then it just looks like it is loading and then gives me this error message.  The representative told me it had something to do with the old platform and that it would be fixed within 30 minutes....this was 5 hours ago.  I checked my cables as well.  Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks!

According to this Article:

 

https://customer.xfinity.com/help-and-support/cable-tv/x1-errorcode-xre-22-srm-8001-low-cable-signal...

 

The Cable Signal is too low. Check that the connections are tight. You might need a Tech to make an adjustment.

Re: Non-Demand

Thank you! A technician scheduled a visit and found that our drop had degraded and was damaged, thus creating our strength problems.

 

To follow up, I am wondering when/if I should expect a crew to come out and bury the new line and run it down the house properly. Do I need to schedule this or should I be patient and assume this is being scheduled in the next week or so? It is getting difficult to mow around etc.

Re: Non-Demand

Hi Jeff19, thank you for working with me via private message and I am glad to hear that a tech came out and identified the bad drop and replaced it.

HBO On Demand Not Working

I've been having the same issue for weeks now with no resolution.  All of my "On Demand" shows work fine with the exception of HBO.  Almost every night, when I try to watch HBO on Demand, the "watch" button is replaced with "subscribe".  I call Comcast and they send refresh signals to my X1 box and eventually it will work again (sometimes not until the next day though).  I have literally gone through this troubleshooting process 5 times in the last few weeks.  Is anyone else having this issue and can someone give me a suggestion on how to fix this permanently?

 

Also, I have two X1 boxes and the show doesn't work on either of them.  So I'm fairly certain it isn't related to the box.

 

Thanks,

Justin

Re: HBO On Demand Not Working

Update on this issue.  I went to the Comcast office today and got a brand new X1 set top box.  Also, the Comcast agent removed HBO from my account and re-added it back to see if that would help.  I got home and the issue is still not fixed.  It still says "subscribe" instead of "watch" next to the HBO on Demand shows I'm trying to watch.  This is so frustrating.

on demand error code xre-07004

have been trying for a week to watch on demand and all i get is "please try again in a few minutes" error code xre-07004.  call comcast and no one has been able to help. each person has said we will get this fix before we hang up.  we that sure did not happen.  then yesterday was told we will have someone call you within 24 hours to get this fixed.  i stayed home all day (i do have things to do) and NOONE ever called.  you pay and arm and a leg for cable and this is the service you receive.

 

UPDATE

here it is another week without on demand.  called several times even had someone one come to the house and nothing.  this is crazy!!!!  one would think a big company like comcast could be able to fix a problem. i see i am not the only one having this issue .. how many people have to complain before comcast will do something!!!

 

UPDATE!!

here it is  WEEK THREE and still no on demand. had a tech came to the house he could not do anything.  had a tier three person on the phone she called everyday for two weeks and now have not heard from her in a few days. i sure wish there was another company i could get my cable from but comcast is the only company where i am. i am at a lost as to what else i could do to get this fixed. comcast clearly does not care that thier customers are not happy.

Hi jd12, in reviewing your account I am showing upstream issues that are likely what is casing this error codes when you are attempting to watch Video on Demand. I would recommend a technician visit to trace and fix these signal issues.  I will send you a private message to get this scheduled.

PPV & VOD skipping & pixelated on playback

Everytime we rent a PPV movie and about 1/3 of the times that we watch VOD the movies are pixelated & choppy on playback, almost like a badly scratched DVD. If we attempt to watch the PPV movie the following night it will work fine, but that defeats the whole purpose of VOD.

 

We've tried power cycling the X1 box, as well as the satellite box in the other room. This does no good. I have checked all connections, both inside the house & where the cable comes into the house. All connections are good.

 

The X1 settop box does seem to run really hot, so I would not be surprised at all if it has issues.

 

This is an incredibly frustrating issue that I would like to resolve ASAP.

Re: PPV & VOD skipping & pixelated on playback

Bugsy2,

 

Skipping & Pixelation are indications of poor signals on the X1 platform and may require a Tech onsite to diagnose and make the necessary repairs.  The Comcast Team available to the Forums has been alerted to your issue.

Re: PPV & VOD skipping & pixelated on playback

Bugsy2 -- As geek46 suggests, it would be best to have a tech for this. If your box is running hot, you may need to have it replaced. I can schedule a tech for you. What days/times work best to have one out?

Re: HBO On Demand Not Working

Hello jsimpso55,

I apologize you are having issues with you HBO On Demand content. I will need to run a few diagnostics on your equipment to move your issue toward resolution. This will interrupt your services. What would be a good time of day to do this?

Bravo On Demand not working

We've been having an issue for the last few weeks where one day we can view Bravo channels on demand and the next day nothing.

Most recently we went 4-5 days without being able to see anything, yesterday they returned and then today, nothing again.

All other networks are fine it's just Bravo.

I've tried multiple box and companion box resets without success.

Online Chat with a Comcast rep had me try resetting both boxes and them sending a signal to try, nothing seems to work.

The wife is driving me nuts cause she can't watch her shows, please help! Smiley Happy

Weird On Demand error

So I just rented "the interview" in HD, and hit watch. It played the trailer for about 90 seconds, followed by cutting into the actual movie for about another minute, before ending. I tried again, and when I fast forward, the trailer would turn into the actual movie, but resume playing the trailer again as soon as I hit play.

Is Kim jong un up to his old tricks again?

Re: Weird On Demand error

Hi Cgschmidt3169 -- Exit out of On Demand and try the asset again. Please let me know if the same thing happens again so I can report it to our On Demand team.

Re: Weird On Demand error

I've tried that. It's still happening 15 hours later. Also, I tried to use the rubbish help chat to report the error. It originally said approximately 10 minute wait for over an hour. I got fed up and left, but kept the window open all day, and after checking it over 12 hours later, it still said approximately 10 minute wait, and wasn't frozen or anything...rubbish. I guess approximate means 10 minutes plus or minus a week?

XRE-22 SRM-8012---solution if chat doesn't work

Just putting this out there in case someone else runs into the same problem.  I couldn't get On Demand to work, and the chat guy sent a signal, reset, etc. and that didn't work.  After the chat I was playing around on the menu and saw "system refresh."  I tried that, and now I have On Demand.

Our two boxes are having the same problem, this may be the starting of an epidemic. Sounds like a programing problem. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Re: HBO On Demand Not Working

I have been unable to wach demand as well, for the past couple of days...just as the Game of Thrones finale on June 26th calls for a rewatch of the season. If not back on in a couple of hours today I am literally going to have to sign up, and pay for, HBO Go to watch the series before tomorrow evening. Not happy about paying for something like this, nor now having to cram it all in in this short amount of time.

did you try using alternate path of the xfinity TVgo or TV apps? or use a desk/laptop and go to xtv.comcast.net login and watch on demand?

Re: HBO On Demand Not Working

Problems on all demand options and apps thru Comcast,  AND for me, the issue is all channels I try to demand, NOT just HBO---so it's ruining our entire weekend. I haven't watched a program on the day and time it's on live in years! 

 

I can watch HBO "live" on my TV, but I can't demand it, anywhere, in anyway.

 

So I paid to subscribe to "HBO NOW" today; and watch on my Fire Tv Stick, on the 60 inch tv. Which means I am paying double HBO this month because of a Comcast....issue of sorts.

 

When I go to my Comcast account online, it's still reporting a general outage for XFINITY TV in red letters (NOT INTERNET), but literally says nothing about the problem, i.e what it is, and the expected resolution date as this is over 48 hours now AND DO THEY REALIZE THIS IS THE FINALE OF GAME OF THRONES WEEKEND??????
